Gr 2–4—These books include straightforward information, such as the positive and negative qualities of each dog, and emphasize the commitment needed to be a good pet owner. An "All About" chapter gives historical and general temperament information. Training, health, and work issues are discussed. The books close with chapters on "Caring for Your [Dog]". The close-up dog portraits against white backgrounds on the cover will endear. An introductory, full-body profile photo of the dog is labeled and contains size ranges and coat colors, although Cavalier and Miniature lack weight stats. The pages include a range of action, still, and close-up shots of the dog type. Various pastel backgrounds areused where photos don't take up the entire page. Extra large text makes these useful for early and struggling readers, although the lack of white space results in a crowded design. These are adequate offerings for collections seeking additional pet materials.
